I've heard of them but never seen them.

Are they really available and from where?

I'm Level 1 certified but I borrowed a case for my L1 flight.

I haven't flown anything bigger than a "G" since then.
 
yup. I've seen 'em flown. Particularly the H45 for alt records. The problem is that most require/required a LEUP as they were over the 62.5g limit. Dunno if anyone is shipping them under PAD ruling w/o a LEUP.

If you need a 29mm H, Consider the Ellis H50. good for medim high altitudes. Took my 2.2# MiniBBX to almost 3,500'

Prolly any of the major HPR motor vendors. Magnum, Performance etc
 
why not buy some casings? Id let you use my 38mm set as long as i dont have anything to fly in it...just PM me when you need it. pay shipping and tadda!!! no problems. its WAY cheaper than SU. most SU motors cost just as much as an RMS casing for that motor class for HPR.


uhhh....weird....this is directed at the below post. lol.

Sandman, you need to go to a Jackson MI Launch next time you can.

Lots of motors from SFSM Industires (Scott Miller) will be there.

Red Arrow and Cowboy Rocketry Vend their as well.

It's just around your corner and the people are the greatest.

Heck, in September, JMRC had 73 attendees at MIS speedway, from four states, and almost 300 flights.

Low power, Mid power, High power, they all fly well with 8 low power pads, 4 mid power pads, 4 high power pads and two away cells with hybrid support.

Lots of H50s, G35s , I69 Single use motors are sold and flown at JMRC.

Ellis also has great 38mm H48 (h45 clone) I-134, and J228 super long burn motors.

The J110 54mm SU is great as well.

Look forward to see you soon at JMRC.

Art,

I planned on going a few times but other commitments and weather kept me away.

It's a fout hour drive for me to Jackson or MIS.

But I will go!

Promise!

By the time you get there, maybe TRA will have given approval for the already tested H110 S/U. Another 29mm.

The Ellises are often in short supply. Best call the vendor beforehand to see what they'll have to bring.
 
I'm really wanting to get my hands on an Ellis I69 for my LOC Weasel. It's got something like a 7 second burn and would send it close to 10,000'. Need an altimeter first, though...

Gary Rosenfield had a tantalizing post at ROL earlier this week. Aerotech is in fact working on new lower-cost single-use H motors (H Econojets?). He said prices would be comparable to some reloads. Since the PAD exemption was upheld in court, fully-assembled motors don't require a LEUP for the time being. He said something along the lines of "remember The Hammer" ad campaign.

A friend named Bob Smith flew a Weasle at Three Oaks on an Ellis 29mm I69.

It was past a mile high club flight. We had to use a Rocket Hunter transmitter to be able to locate it and get it back after the flight.

That WEEEEAAAASSSEEEEEEL just kept going, and going, and going............

we got everyone saying weeeeaaaassssseeeeeel, he he ;-)

Great kits those Weasels. Good for a I-134 38mm as well for a two mile high club.

[the obvious] Being upheld also means they were ALWAYS exempt so any AT requirement self-imposed as "Restricted Access-sm" was always wrong.

When the law says you can't and you do, that's wrong.
When the law says you can and you don't, that's a marketing decision.
